France and Brazil are the two teams that Lionel Messi believes have the best chance of winning the World Cup

Lionel Messi, captain of Argentina, said that France and Brazil are the favourites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which will be held in Qatar. This is due to the fact that both countries have core groups of players who have played together for an extended period of time.

Messi said that Brazil, Germany, France, England, and Spain are often tagged as favourites to win, but the 35-year-old striker believes that France and Brazil are the strongest two teams coming into the tournament that will take place from November 20 to December 18.

They have been successful at maintaining the same core of players for a significant amount of time. In spite of their poor performance in the last European Championship, in which they were ousted in the round of 16, France has a number of talented players.

They share the same coach and have a well-defined plan (Didier Deschamps). Under Tite, Brazil has maintained a certain level of consistency.

Messi did not identify Argentina as one of the favourites, despite the fact that Lionel Scaloni’s team won the Copa America last year by defeating Brazil in the final match. Argentina is now undefeated in their previous 35 matches.

The recent injuries suffered by Argentina’s main players Paulo Dybala and Angel Di Maria have been a source of recent difficulty for the team.

Although the fixture congestion in October for club soccer was characterised by Scaloni as “awful,” he pushed his players to play to their full potential in order to reduce the chance of injury before the World Cup.

“We are at such a tough period. Scaloni told AFAestudio that the players are engaging in a great deal of game play. “There is a potential for issues due to the fact that there have been injuries and bans. It’s a must to make the national team if you want to be considered an exceptional player.

“I am concerned, but there is not much that can be done. My opinion is that the athlete should go out on the field to play without giving any thought to what is going to happen next since doing so might be damaging to their performance. Let them play as they would normally.

In Argentina’s last warm-up match before travelling to the World Cup, the squad will compete against the United Arab Emirates in November. Argentina’s first game at the World Cup will be against Saudi Arabia on November 22. Saudi Arabia will be Argentina’s opponent in Group C. There are other teams from Mexico and Poland competing in this group.
